Do y’all remember my 15-minute gorgeous wreath from last fall?

And then how I used the same grapevine wreath base to do my spring succulent wreath in 10 minutes?

Well, my sister texted me last week and said, “Juls, can we (“we” meaning you), make this wreath for me, for less than $100?” (Go ahead, click the link for the inspiration image)

I said, “Uhhh, pretty sure I can… for like $99.” Well, WE think we are funny.

Of course, we immediately hopped on over to the local craft store (my sister lives down the street from MWA), purchased what we needed, and made the wreath in about 15 minutes… no joke!

So, here’s how YOU can create this lovely diy fall hydrangea wreath in just about 15 minutes (maybe less)!

What You’ll Need for a DIY Fall Hydrangea Wreath

You really only need a few items to create this luxurious look for your decor:

Easy enough, right?

Like us, you probably already have the last three items, and we even had the ribbon, too! So all we needed were the stems and grapevine wreath base!

How to Make a Fall Hydrangea Wreath in 15 Minutes

Seriously… this is just too easy!

steps for making a diy fall hydrangea wreath
  1. Cut the heads off your hydrangea leaving about 1.5 inches of ‘stem’ (see close up on second photo)
  2. (Pro-tip: Before using glue, add the hydrangea heads to the grapevine and then space them out accordingly. THEN go back and take them out, add glue, and place back in the appropriate spot. Remember, bare spots can be covered with leaves!) Take your first hydrangea and add hot glue to the stem and stick it in the grapevine wreath. I know it seems obvious, but take your next color and then color number three and add to the grapevine. Do this same sequence two more times.
  3. and 4. Seperate your leaves from the stems and add them to the grapevine wreath, underneath and between the hydrangea heads. See the finished product photos below for tips on placement.

Add the bow, and your are set for your fall door decor!

Where Can I Put a DIY Fall Hydrangea Wreath

Wreaths aren’t just for your outside door (thought that is where my sister put hers)! Here’s some more ideas of where you can place an autumn wreath:

  • Inside your entryway door! Yes… a wreath inside the door is a great addition to your seasonal decor. Uhhh, I’m thinkin’ My Wee Abode needs that right now… I’ll be back in 15-minutes!
  • Okay, I’m back. Wreaths are lovely on china cabinets. My friend Crissy from First Day of Home adds TWO fall wreaths to her dining room cabinets!
  • Add a wreath to a large mirror! This look creates a 3-dimensional decor that can’t be beat!
  • Kitchen cabinets… little mini wreaths hanging down kitchen cabinets are so pretty! (I know this is for Christmas, but you can really do this for any season… and I love me some Worthing Court!)

DIY Fall Hydrangea Wreath in 15 Minutes

Oh, I almost forgot… here’s the finished hydrangea wreath that my sister ended up getting for her birthday… from me! ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Yes, she’s one of those zillions of people born in September!)

She immediately put it on her front door… outside. ๐Ÿ˜‰ What do you think? Pretty close to the $100 wreath, right? This cost just about $50 (IF you get the items on sale).

My sister opted for this green ribbon I had in my stock-pile rather than the gold crinkle ribbon on the photo from Etsy. The sage color is definitely more my sister’s style anyways.

Let me know where you like to put your seasonal wreaths. Do you have a wreath in your home for the seasons? Do you even ever use a wreath? Will you now? Inquiring minds want to know! ๐Ÿ˜‰ And no judging, I promise! ๐Ÿ˜‰

AND, if you have some dried hydrangeas, you can use those, too! Take a look at how to make a wreath with dried hydrangeas at My Family Thyme!

  1. That is beautiful! I love making up different wreaths for our front door for each season; though I do try to use the ones I made for 2 years in a row if the flowers/ribbons are still mostly intact and not faded by the sun.

    1. Yes, my sister is not one to change things up too much… This wreath will be on her door for many autumn seasons! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Julie, that looks amazing!! I love that creative people can save a lot of money with DIY’s!! I keep a wreath, or basket or something on my front door all the time. It seems my house is bare if there isn’t something on the front door. I also usually have one above my fireplace during every season along with other seasonal decor. Keep up the beautiful, you’re an awesome blogger and I love following you.

    1. Oh, thank you so much, Anita! You made my day! So glad you are part of the MWA fam! (And using a wreath above your mantel… Good one!)

  3. Oh my gosh, it looks just like the inspiration photo, Julie! What a lucky sister you have! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love the ribbon you chose, too. It turned out so well, and I love how quick and easy it is to put together. Pinning!

  4. Stunning absolutely stunning. One of my favorite flowers but I am not a wreath fan. I love all the ones youโ€™ve demonstrated though.

  5. Wow! Your sister must have been overjoyed with the wreath that you made her. Your version of the inspiration picture is fabulous and your sister is sure to enjoy this wreath for years to come.

  6. This wreath is very beautiful. I have been looking for flowers online, since we are in lockdown, and they come in various sizes. What width would you recommend?

    Thank you,

    1. Oh, thanks for the kinds words, Gina… I would choose a hydrangea head that measured anywhere from 5-7 inches across. I just updated the affliate link so you can see some on Amazon!

  7. Love your wreath you made for your sister. Can we be sisters as my sister doesn’t do DIYs. I have dried hydrangeas from last year so I am going to put them in a wreath maybe get me a grapevine base and ribbon. Someone said they make a paint for dried flowers so am going to look into that so I can have more colors to choose from. Thanks for sharing and giving us ideas to go on for holidays and seasons.

    1. Good morning, Fernie! Hehe… I would be your sister if we lived closer! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think a grapevine wreath is a perfect base to add your dried hydrangeas! I bet it will be gorgeous!

  8. I love hydrangeas and they make the most beautiful wreaths! The colors you chose are perfect for Fall and the ribbon is like icing on the cake! I’m sure your sister is thrilled with this wreath! Blessings, Donna

    1. Thank you SO much, Pam! You made my day! (I did see the feature before I answered your comment. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

  9. Julie, this is gorgeous. I love how you make such beautiful decorations for your home and have them not cost so much. You are so talented. Many blessings.

  10. Love it! Wreaths are way overpriced. I probably couldn’t do the $50, but she will get a lot of use from it. I love green, so the ribbon looks great, too. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I know… $50 is a bit much for me, too, but my sister uses it every season… so, she has gotten her money’s worth! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. This is fantastic Julie! You did such a good job and might be better than the original if I do say so myself. Btw, your are funny. Totally made me chuckle. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for sharing at the Home imagined party. XO- MaryJo

    1. Oh! Thank you! My sister loves that wreath, still! And uses it each fall! I think she even ended up making a second one, once she saw how easy it was! (Or, she may have drafted her daughter to do it!) I’m so glad you giggled… that always makes my day when someone ‘gets’ me!
